Album wise, I probably rate them in the same order of their release. That said, for some strange reason I've never been a huge fan of listening to the band in album format.


My favorite July related songs:

Low - July
The Decemberists - July, July!
Galaxy 500 - Fourth of July
Katatonia - July
Laura Veirs - July Flame
U2 - 4th of July

One album per artist:

1. Arcade Fire - Funeral
2. Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
3. The Mountain Goats - Tallahassee
4. Beck - Sea Change
5. Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
6. Madvillain - Madvillainy
7. The Shins - Oh, Inverted World
8. Modest Mouse - The Moon and Antarctica
9. Kanye West - Late Registration
10. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
11. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
12. Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
13. Spoon - Girls Can Tell
14. The Dismemberment Plan - Change
15. Deerhunter - Microcastle
16. The National - Boxer
17. Radiohead - Kid A
18. The New Pornographers - Twin Cinema
19. My Morning Jacket - Z
20. Gorillaz - Demon Days
21. Super Furry Animals - Rings Around the World
22. Okkervil River - The Stage Names
23. Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway
24. Dungen - Ta det lugnt
25. Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It in People

In Rainbows and Alligator got screwed over, but I'm not sure how high either of them would have ranked anyway. Love them to death, but I don't listen to In Rainbows as much as I used to, and Alligator has its flaws. This isn't as deep of a list as I would like, but I'm not exactly protective of the '00s. A '60s or '70s list would be damn near impossible for me. I could make a great top 25 for 1971 alone.

It's sad that I'm probably not even going to two of yours. Feist is one of those acts I wouldn't pay serious coin to go see on her own (I don't know her music very well), so I might as well see her while she's around. Purity Ring's album was just pretty good, nothing I'm excited to go see.

Top 5 artists I'm most excited to see this weekend:

Japandroids!!!
Godspeed You!!!! Black Emperor!!!!
Lotus Plaza!!!
Olivia Tremor Control!!!
Beach House!!!!!!!

Paying $150 to see these five by themselves would be tempting. Thankfully, there's The Men, Thee Oh Sees, Clams Casino, Chromatics, Hot Chip, Flying Lotus, Cults, Kendrick Lamar, Real Estate and Unknown Mortal Orchestra to pad that out.
